Just host the code in Windows-land.

Symlink ~/code to /mnt/c/Users/jamie/code, run whatever editor I want in windows to edit the code, and run my app from linux-land in the console. Hasn't given me a hiccup yet, even with a local sqlite database and such.

If you just treat your linux homedir as a spot for dotfiles and symlinks out to windows, it shouldn't give you much trouble unless you're doing stuff that relies heavily on owner/write permissions.
